Bespoke and sentimental: Via Sollertia
The true meaning of bespoke refers to handcrafted design, developed in close consultation with the client.
A bespoke ring crafted from a piece of jewellery with sentimental value is a meaningful way of re-creating something beautiful, says designer Clare of Via Sollertia. “We often have customers bring in jewellery from their great grandmother or a family member who passed away, so we can turn it into bridal jewellery or an engagement ring. It’s my favourite thing to create – I love the family story and sentimentality behind it. And there is no wastage, so it’s also an eco-conscious, sustainable option.”
Located in the heart of the city on iconic New Regent Street, the family-owned business provides a friendly, welcoming atmosphere and can work with any budget. “We’re willing to go above and beyond what customers expect. Throughout the creation process, they are involved every step of the way.”
